Hey there good old bloggity blog blog. Jeez, I hadn’t realized it had been sooooo loooong since I posted. But it’s hard to top the awesomeness of the Doritos Flavor Nugget.
So here we are, already in 2011. Lots has gone on in the past, oh almost year and a half since I posted. Our friend Kelvin got married to Eva. Great lady who keeps us steeped in low-fat dessert goodness. Todd and Karissa aren’t just dating any more; they got married in 2009, just one day before our vary own anniversary. Then last year my Mom had a stroke; the true definition of awful. She is doing good on her recovery track now, but man that was a hard/emotional/exhausting June. Then we lost our old lady kitty, Faster. Another truly agonizing week. I’m telling ya, in many deep emotional ways 2010 = the suck.
But being eternally optimistic (pretty much learned from my Mom), good things did happen. Our friend Amy had her second baby, a real cutie he is! Todd and Karissa are expecting their first baby. We are so excited for them. Brad’s dad Jim finally retired this October and we orchestrated a surprise visit to celebrate with them down in FLA. Boy was that fun! We also surprised our nieces. I don’t think I have every seen anyone so surprised as Emmaline was when we showed up at the door! We adopted two little kittens, Shitake and Pepper. They are so cute and cuddly and full of life. We have enjoyed having them and their kitten energy. Then Brad re-connected with a friend from his days at Full Sail in Florida. Chris and his wife Kim just moved back to Oregon last fall after 15 years in NYC. We are pleased to have discovered a new set of friends with whom we get along so well with. It’s been fun getting to know them and expanding our social life. Oh yeah, and the SF Giants finally won the World Serious. It was lots of fun to watch and super exciting when they clinched it!
Now 2011 is in front of us and looks to be a good year. Brad’s parent’s have just moved to Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. They are super happy and we are happy for them. Looking forward to them visiting us this Spring; and in turn visiting them and Leah’s family for Christmas in Tenn.
No year is ever totally bad, because Brad and I have truly a great life. My 20th high school reunion is this year. 20 years. Seriously. Not sure if I want to go or not. But lots of other fun, much less awkward stuff awaiting us I am sure.
